Ain't got no home

If there's one item of information that absolutely isn't newsworthy, it's an abandoned cat that needs a home. But on a routine stop at the vet's just now, we couldn't help but notice that they have a gorgeous two-year-old male American short hair that someone left on their doorstep last week. This guy is jet black, with golden eyes that look right through you. He looks quite healthy -- whoever left him had taken good care of him. He's been neutered, they've given him some shots and some tests, and he's A-OK.

If I didn't think our current tom cat would object, I'd be lobbying hard to bring this guy home. He really is adorable, a bit of a talker, and he looks promising as a mouser. The vet that's got him is a great, high-end shop in close-in Northeast that we trust implicitly based on years of experience. If you're curious, call them at 503-282-0380 and check this fellow out.

I look forward to the day when a cat needing a home will be newsworthy: I hear from two reliable sources that since cities in Scotland started publicly funded, spay/neuter programs, it is actually hard to find a cat. A graduate student borrowed a cat for the school year from a cat protection agency, a feral, who hid under the bed most of the time.

Is there still feral cat racing at PGE Park during the 7th inning stretch?

Arrrgghhh! A pox on you for telling me about a cat in need! How will I resist?
